Practical analysis for investment professionals

CFA Institute Seminar for Global Investors

For 64 years, the Financial Analysts Seminar has been widely known as one of the most comprehensive continuing education programs for investment professionals, with a long tradition of excellence. Benjamin Graham served on its faculty. Warren Buffett attended its sessions. And in 2019, to better reflect the global nature of the program and our audience, the name is changing to become the CFA Institute Seminar for Global Investors.
